Shopping in Charlottesville

(Great English antique furniture, andirons, and accessories)

Behind the Main Shop is a small consignment shop that has everything from furniture, lighting, clothing, and horse riding gear!

Next door is the marvelous And George that everyone raves so much about. 
It is a wonderful store that carries the most unique gifts and accessories. 
I even found a great bookcase to purchase for one of my clients in New York! 

I different way to frame prints shown here with the red walls coming through the glass.

The Orange is a newer store in Charlottesville carrying a mix of vintage antiques. 
It almost feels like you are pulling into an auto body shop in the parking lot, but there is so much great treasure to be found inside!

The Barn Swallow is a beautiful barn that maintains beautiful greenery and flowers, along with amazing pottery gifts.

Sophie Matheson is taking over Charlottesville with her new Medallion membership program and her Scout Guide for shopping and dining.  It is a great resource guide for your next visit to Charlottesville.  She will let you in on the best hidden places and stores!
Sophie Says "My goal is to promote local business and help to maintain Charlottesville as a unique and interesting place to live.  
WE MUST SHOP LOCALLY if we want to keep Charlottesville unique.  
I hope to open up the doors to the small artist studios and inside information around town that will inspire you to shop at home. We can make a difference."
Now, when you head back to visit your alma mater this Fall, make sure to pick up the newest Scout guide and visit these stores and shop!
